The Club at Pine Forest
The 18 semi-private holes at Pine Forest wind through the tall Summerville pines with numerous live oaks, dogwoods and a lake system thrown in for good measure. With an equal balance of straightaways, doglegs and elevation changes, this course is nicely balanced, with challenges and fun in store for golfers of all levels. Rental clubs and electric carts are available.
At 6,905 yards with a 138-slope rating, Pine Forest lives up to its name, as the course has numerous barriers of tall Summerville pines to cause problems for an errant shot. The Bob Spence design also makes use of water to add to the difficulty of some holes. It's a semi-private course, and they've named each hole, with No. 12 being known as "Little Augusta" while No. 15 is "Wastelands."

This "hot deal" was really more than I expected. Nice course, well kept, fairly challenging. No towels at the ball washers, but that is really not a big deal. Unbeatable for the price.
I was on vacation and booked this course through golf now. It was a nice course, your typical links style with not a lot of challenging holes. The greens were very slow as it appeared they have not been cut for while. They however were in good shape. I would go back again.
I was very disappointed when we arrived and found three foursomes on the TEe ahead of us at our teatime. Apparently our teatime was double booked. There was no Ranger to resolve the issue. So we had to wait through three teetimes to play. Once playing the course Was very challenging. I will go back but make sure that your teatime is correct and will be honored.
Stellar conditions for early March
Bought a real cheap hot deal for a beautiful Saturday midday round. Looking back, I would’ve paid twice as much. Greens were in great condition, pretty fast and rolled true. Not too soggy even after tons of rain recently. Just generally more lush than expected for this time of year. Looking forward to going back.
I imagine this is a really nice course when there is grass on the fairways. Winter conditions are very wet.
Dufficult course that does not drain well
Not extremely long but very difficult. The fairways are peppered with moguls, which also surround the greens. The greens are also all elevated. Don’t leave your wedges at home. You will not roll any balls onto these greens. You have to put it there. In good wreathes a good course, but rain is.bane to this course. On the day I played it was cart path only. Still water was everywhere as were muddy areas. The driving range was closed because the rain softens the ground are balls are lost in the mud. Call before going the find out the conditions. I have played this course several times and when it is in good shape it is a fun course.
Good Course and Great Value
I play Pine Forest whenever I am in the area. The course is an interesting design, with many multi tiered and elevated greens. It is a challenge for golfers of any level. And the novice players should bring lots of ammo and their sense of humour.
The Club at Pine Forest
We always enjoy this course. Just difficult enough to challenge the beginner and seasoned golfer. The cart paths could use some work but that's our only complaint.
Played this in January several years back... It was in the 40's and a fun day of golf... Hard to tell how a course actually is in the middle of January of course. I might bump my review to a four star if it was in season and I could play it again.
Most for your money
This is always a fun course to play. The greens looked great on New Year’s Day while the rest of the course was still Saturated with water from the previous rain we had. We could have played faster if the 2 guys in front of us didn’t hit 4 balls off the tee box every hole the. Go find all 4 balls.
Waste of time
Course was wet and muddy. Fairways in rough shape. Greens were extremely slow and bumpy. Will not play this course again.
Great course. Very busy
We felt rushed by the people behind us and held up by the people in front of us. It was just a really busy day. Other than that it was great! Lovely course.
First time playing here. Course has some great moments, and also some that need some prior knowledge (luckily I was playing with a regular). A lot of rain the night before, so there was some standing water, but nothing obscene. Greens were a bit hairy, so they were quite slow. Pace of play was also slow with a good bit of waiting, but it was Memorial Day, so that’s to be expected. Overall great course and would play again anytime!
The course has always been in good condition but just recently playing there were a lot of burnt greens. Tee boxes were extremely hard and unable to use tees on a few. Will not be playing there for the rates they are charging now. There was no starter or anyone on the course to help with pace of play. Finished a round just over 5 hours. Typical round with my group takes 3-3.5 when we have four. This day we only had 3 in our group.
